Green World Group delivered a virtual online In-Company Training to the delegates of Gates India Pvt Ltd which was conducted by our experienced tutor Mr. Hormuz Siodia..
LASER SAFETY TRAINING
LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, which emits a beam of coherent light through an optical amplification process.
Lasers are frequently used in various industries that are safe when it is used properly. At the same time, workers may be exposed to radiation, hazardous gases, molten metal, liquid chemicals, caustic fumes, and liquid chemicals, depending on the type of laser and how it is used. The human body is vulnerable to the output of certain lasers, which can cause damage to the eyes and Skin of working employees.
Our in-company training helps workers use lasers safely and avoid hazards. It is an organization’s responsibility to provide proper training to the working employees.
